It's re- time apparently!

I'm Verity (she/they), I'm nearly finished with studying medicine in the UK!

🚑 often thinking about: critical care, prehospital/community emergency medicine, social determinants of health, mitochondria

⌨ also interactive fiction and other storytelling!

Currently working on a tiny education project, and also passing my exams properly... hello!

covid vax, personal 

low key sad that I lost my covid vax sticker on an ID card I had to return 😅

asking for money help, boosts needed :boost_ok: 


i need $50-ish for groceries and $80 for medical weed

i didn't get the second and third stimulus because my abusive parents claimed me as a dependent to steal them, and my ex-boss refuses to give me my W-2 so i can get that fixed, so i'm still trying to get everything sorted out

i've been trying to find a job video editing or something, i can't work anywhere facing the public because i have asthma and if i catch covid i'll die excruciatingly




thank you so much for saving my life multiple times and continuing to keep me alive, fediverse!!! :black_sparkles: :blacker_heart:

I guess when you see someone as an internet joke you forget that they are a real person and are capable of changing. Nobody is frozen forever in their most embarrassing moment even if meme culture and the internet makes it look like that.

hey y'all! as some of you might know I'm moving for the first time in my life soon™️ but in the meantime I'm doing some roomie interviews/chats (which I've also never done before)

what are some questions I should be asking during these calls? are there any pieces of advice you have for me?

I'm v nervous about this so anything helps, even if it seems incredibly obvious
